WHY IT MATTERS
Created in 2011 to combat the growing epidemic of homelessness among American Veterans, Support Homeless Veterans (SHV) a 501c3 registered charity, is devoted to bringing quality of life to these forgotten heroes. We are driven to prevent recently discharged Veterans from becoming chronically homeless or suffering from mental health and addiction issues. We offer permanent supported housing as an alternative to shelters, transitional housing, projects, or living alone with the assistance of a section 8 voucher; which are the current options for low-income veterans. In America there are over 67,000 homeless veterans; many of them are disabled waiting for compensation benefits. Giving bars of soap to the veterans helps to keep them clean and safe during tough times.
